Yummy! I had a stroke of inspiration and made half this recipe (using a combo of oj and milk-1 tablespoon each) and added a dash of cinnamon. Spread glaze on leftover waffles and broiled for a yummy morning treat! It made enough to glaze 3-4 waffles. Thanks for the recipe!

Kids and hubby LOVED it! A visiting kid said, "This is smoother than 'regular' icing" (meaning store bought).

I am not sure if the rest of you have made gazes before, especially for cinnamon rolls...but, this recipe was terrible! The butter added a darker color than preferred and the consistency was gritty....I know how to cook, bake, and follow recipes but I had to try this more than once after reading the reviews. However, both times I did not like the darker color due to the butter and the grittiness even with the softest/most sifted powdered sugar. In addition, either wit OJ or milk, or both, or adding it gradually/drizzling it in/it just did not matter! It was thick and DID NOT harden as cooled..... by the way, removing the butter really helped a lot!!!! YOU CAN ALSO use cream cheese instead of butter or eliminate it all together......also, you can replace the OJ and/or milk with just water. SO basically, you end up with an easier recipe of powdered sugar, vanilla, and water or milk.....much much better!!!!! Nice and clearish white glaze, perfectly drizzible consistency and DOES harden as it cools....when warmed back up, it melts perfectly again just like the original application! Do not attempt this recipe, it is a waste of time and butter LOL

This is just the perfect glaze! The milk or OJ varies with room temp. I warmed it a tiny bit so it would glide on easier.

Tastes good. I dribbled the milk in until I got the proper consistency. I used it on a homemade coffee cake.

Extremely easy and quick. This worked great for cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Made for PRMR.

Made for the What's on the Menu? Tag Game @ FF&F & served atop "kanil snudur", the very popular Icelandic equivalent of cinnamon rolls (made using http://www.food.com/recipe/easiest-cinnamon-rolls-ever-425804 by Chef bifaerie79). My outcome was more like icing than a glaze, but I spread it liberally on the "kanil snudar", smoothed it out a bit w/my pastry brush & then warmed the combo in my microwave, which melted the icing & resulted in the lovely little & lightly glazed rolls I wanted for my family brunch. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.

This was an awesome recipe. I used the two cups or so of sugar, heavy whipping cream because that is what I had. Almond and vanilla extract. I'm not a seasoned baker but this recipe was perfect and ingredients simple!! If the naysayers failed it was something they did wrong not the recipe.

This was much better then I expected! I used 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter to 1/2 a cup of sugar and a teaspoon of milk. I softened the butter then added the vanilla and sugar and mixed real well with a spoon until it was smooth. Then I added the milk to thin it out a little. Very yummy. I think a little cream cheese would be great in this and evem orange or almond extract. Thumbs up!
